    ABS bleeding.

    Some of our SE's might be old enough now that a few could be thinking about replacing brake oil & bleeding.

    So, I wonder if there are any Teckies here that might be able to advise if this link below is any use to us?

    It is if you have a Dealertool.

    I used my Dealertool last year to bleed the brakes on my TTSE. Works great, but the way the brake system works and if you want to get all the old brake fluid replaced, you need to first bleed the brakes like you would normally, then use the dealer tool to replace all the old fluid in the ABS unit, then re-bleed the brake system like you normally would again. Doing the job this way ensures that all the fluid in the entire brake system is replaced with fresh fluid.

     :435: What is this Dealer Tool I keep hearing about?  I thought it was used to read error codes like when your check engine light comes on.

    It's a little 'box of tricks' that you connect to the bike and a laptop, run some software and it 'talks' to the bike, operating pumps etc.

    I bought the CD along with a few others here some time ago.  :002:

    That's good news, I'm set-up and ready now with another future expense that I don't need to worry about. :062:

    If you are not going to do any maintenance on your bike you can skip the dealer tool.  You can read trouble codes without it.
    If you want to do service yourself then you want a dealer tool to reset the service reminder and do various tests such as checking that the fans are running, check screen motor, running abs pump and more.

    Talking of that, I've not seen that message pop up on mine, anyone know if it is it controlled via mileage/time or is there a fancy sensor that analyses the engine oil for example?

    The default is 10,000 miles.
    You can change that with the dealer tool.

    When you are getting close to the next service mileage you will see warnings in the display when you first turn on the key.  For example "475 miles to service"
